Corporation Websites Collection
This collection contains an extracted web archive corpus of 0.8+ million corporate websites (from an original list of ~0.98 websites) extracted from the archive.org web archive, covering the period 1996 to early 2017. This corpus was originally created as a collaboration between the Internet Archive and a group at Dartmouth University, but it may be useful to other researchers.
Updated or more detailed information may exist at:
- approximately 840,000 domains
- more than 500,000,000 unique URLs
- more than 1,600 WARC files and 26,000 ARC files
- more than 3.25 TB compressed
This dataset contains a sample of up to 500 unique text/html URLs per year for given websites. The sample records were selected based on the sort order of the URL strings and extracted and packaged into (W)ARC files. The breakdown of the number of captures per year per domain is available here:
